LARRY Hagman will be commemorated on the set of 'Dallas'.

The 81-year-old actor - who passed away from ongoing complications in his battle with throat cancer on Friday (23.11.12) - will be honoured with a public service at the US soap's Southfork Ranch on December 2, which was home to his villainous alter-ego J.R. Ewing and his family.

Larry's long-term manager and close friend Gene Yusem confirmed to MailOnline: "It sounds like it will happen and I wouldn't be surprised if it does.

"Larry had such a great sense of humour, he would have loved it."

Fans of the actor who secure a spot at the public memorial will also be able to go on a tour of the ranch ahead of the service.

Larry's manager John Catalonia revealed the actor will be honoured with two further private services in Texas and California next week.

John said: "There will not be an official burial site for Mr. Hagman."

While the 'I Dream of Jeannie' star's ashes were expected to be scattered on the set of 'Dallas' and at various locations around the world, his son Preston says such an announcement is "premature".

He explained: "Right now we are going to be keeping his ashes within the family and we are going to wait for my mother to pass on so they can be together."
